Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food and they offered a relatively large selection of options. Service was very good and attentive. The main dish was delicious (5/5). I had the crepe for dessert - it would have been great as well if it wasn't smothered in syrup (3.5/5). I picked this restaurant based off of previous trip... More

Chiko is a Chilean restaurant. It was recommended to us, and we are recommending it to others. The service and food were very good. We had a pollock which was cooked perfectly, and a seafood stew. The price was very reasonable.

A little cheaper than other seafood places with great food. We had attentive, pleasant service. The king crab parmesan stew was a little tasteless. The salmon and grilled vegetables was excellent. They did not have the drinks that were on the menu but did make a good mojito.

This friendly, no-frills Argentinian-Chilean restaurant is less expensive than some of its counterparts in Ushuaia, yet serves very good food. The appetizers and my centolla dish were delicious. Service was also excellent and very accommodating, since they opened the restaurant a bit earlier for us. Our son was tired and they understood that we needed an early dinner – thank... More

Food didn't taste great. I had the crab salad, which was bland. My boyfriend had the Steak, it was ok. The service was horrendous. We were left waiting for a long time at every stage of our meal.

Painfully slow even to give us a menu and ask us for drinks. The place wasn't very busy either so it looked like the staff just didn't understand how to wait tables. Food was pretty good but a little expensive for what you got. Will not return here.

Recommended by a tour guide for crab salad. After taking our order, ten minutes later were informed that they "were out of crab." After another ten minutes, we were informed that they were also "out of chardonnay." The substitute seafood salads were barely edible; my wife lost hers a few hours later. The server became involved with a party of... More

I was staying at the hostel up the street (Antarctica Hostel) and I happened to notice this restaurant on the map in my LP as being close by, so I wondered over. I got the King Crab souffle, as that I wanted to try the crab in Ushuaia, and it was about the only dish without onions - I couldn't... More
